I don’t understand what she was mad at??? Why wouldn’t she want you to help your cousin?

He did, unfortunately he’s kind of an aloof person. So his reaction to his gf’s response was indifferent. He’s been a best friend since kindergarten, this gf just is an unpleasant person

So the buddy’s GF was celebrating at the same bar - but you were there for the cousin’s birthday, right? And like any good 21yr old, your cousin overdid it. You, being a responsible guy and good family member, took care of her and kept her safe. Your buddy’s GF’s birthday observation - which was not connected to the cousin’s birthday and maybe not even something you were invited to - continued sans you, your GF and your drunk cousin, right? And that pissed the buddy’s GF off enough to make a stink? Seriously, a moment of silence for your buddy having such a PITA drama queen of a GF to even get to this point. I’m not sure saying anything to him will fix the GF, but I hope his next GF is cooler. - 38yr old lady who got smashed at the bar on her 21st and had awesome guy friends who kept her safe, took her home and were supremely cool about it

Dude, tell your friend he needs to get out asap. He may be pissed in the moment and for some time afterwards but he'll thank you later for it. Good friends are real with each other.

This is outrageous. Good on you for taking care of your cousin. Family first!

The time to respond would have been at the moment she was being a twatwaffle while you were headed to help your cousin. “Bitch imma help my family - MOVE.” If she apologized? Fine whatever wgaf? If she was expecting you to understand and think it’s reasonable that she was annoyed? Hard pass, don’t care, still not important. Don’t engage the twatwaffle. Unless she’s directly blocking your path, and then eliminate the obstacle. Otherwise it’s beneath you.

Recently lateralled to a new firm and I have mild “PTSD” from my old firm 😶 everything from the way docs are saved on the system, file naming, email writing style, team conventions etc - I keep thinking any small mistake would get me yelled at / be at the receiving end of snarky or passive aggressive emails but people at my new firm are so lovely and far from that. I’m trying really hard to move past this and my new colleagues are probably getting sick of my questions 😂 Anyone else can relate?
